Molly-Catherine Goodson, M.A., J.D. - CDS Class of 2007

When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was, He replied: Love God. Love people (Matthew 22:37-39). Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus. . .”

Calvary Day School was my “second home” from the ages of ten to eighteen. Within the walls of Calvary I learned what it meant to love God above all else, to love people, and to do everything for God’s glory.

My experience at Calvary was significant in establishing who I am. The three spheres of formation I’m most aware of today are academic, social, and artistic.

I now attend an incredible college that is growing me artistically, professionally, spiritually, and intellectually, and it opens countless doors for me. This institution is also academically rigorous, and many of my peers aren’t able to stay here because they aren’t up for the challenge. Because of my education at Calvary, not only can I survive the academics at a top-notch school, but I’m able to enjoy the learning experience because it builds on what I’ve already learned at Calvary. Also, my social sphere at Calvary taught me what true friendship is. I cannot speak for everyone, but my experience with friends was fun and formative. I have an understanding of what my friendships in college should look like because of the friendships I made at Calvary. Finally, I’m thankful for Calvary because I learned about the arts in the context of a Christian worldview. My understanding of the arts comes from the perspective that they are more than mere entertainment and more than platforms of selfish self-expression. Art doesn’t have to say Jesus’ name to point to Him, and we miss out on the experience if we don’t see how He is tied to what we are creating.

I came to Calvary at the start of my sixth grade year and have been here ever since. I appreciate the challenge that my teachers have given me to reach my potential whether it is in the classroom, in the pool, or on the stage. This guidance has created a drive in me and taught me the work ethic it takes to be successful as evidenced by my earning my Eagle Scout, being named captain of our Varsity Swim Team at CDS, and the various lead roles in our plays and praise band.

I attended Calvary for high school from '03-'07. I came from a similar small private school structure so the coolest thing for me was that Calvary felt like a tight knit family from the very beginning. It was neat that the culture was so inviting. It made the jump from middle school to high school and to a new school relatively seamless for me.
